formal and informal fallacy
In philosophy, reasoning that fails to establish its conclusion because of deficiencies in form or wording. Formal fallacies are types of deductive argument that instantiate an invalid inference pattern (see deduction; validity); an example is "affirming the consequent: If A then B; B; therefore, A." Informal fallacies are types of inductive argument the premises of which fail to establish the conclusion because of their content. There are many kinds of informal fallacy; examples include argumentum ad hominem ("argument against the man"), which consists of attacking the arguer instead of his argument; the fallacy of false cause, which consists of arguing from the premise that one event precedes another to the conclusion that the first event is the cause of the second; the fallacy of composition, which consists of arguing from the premise that a part of a thing has a certain property to the conclusion that the thing itself has that property; and the fallacy of equivocation, which consists of arguing from a premise in which a term is used in one sense to a conclusion in which the term is used in another sense

logical fallacy

naturalistic fallacy
Fallacy of treating the term "good" (or any equivalent term) as if it were the name of a natural property. In 1903 G.E. Moore presented in Principia Ethica his "open-question argument" against what he called the naturalistic fallacy, with the aim of proving that "good" is the name of a simple, unanalyzable quality, incapable of being defined in terms of some natural quality of the world, whether it be "pleasurable" (John Stuart Mill) or "highly evolved" (Herbert Spencer). Since Moore's argument applied to any attempt to define good in terms of something else, including something supernatural such as "what God wills," the term "naturalistic fallacy" is not apt. The open-question argument turns any proposed definition of good into a question (e.g., "Good means pleasurable" becomes "Is everything pleasurable good?") Moore's point being that the proposed definition cannot be correct, because if it were the question would be meaningless
pathetic fallacy
the fallacy of attributing human feelings to inanimate objects; `the friendly sun' is an example of the pathetic fallacy
pathetic fallacy
The attribution of human emotions or characteristics to inanimate objects or to nature; for example, angry clouds; a cruel wind. the idea of describing the sea, rocks, weather etc in literature as if they were human
